A Model Set Design for “El Nogalar”

Our upcoming production of the west coast premiere of El Nogalar (The Pecan Orchard) by Tanya Saracho is set in modern day Mexico. Directed by Laurie Woolery, the play will be performed on an open, stylized, multi-use set where the various locations of the story — both interior and exterior — can all magically take place. It is the job of our talented and award-winning set designer  Frederica Nascimento (Opus) to make it happen on the Fountain stage.

A sneak peak at the design model for the El Nogalar set:

Cool, eh? Wait til you see the finished set! Beautiful and magical …
